    Interesting Info About The Gerenuk

Furthermore, they help the animal look around with less difficulty so it can give consideration to potential predators that may be hunting it. The gerenuk also has lengthy, thin limbs that function in the same way as its neck area in relation to foraging for food. These elegant legs also help the critter dash and bound when it tries to avoid possible predators which may be going after it.
